Cadenas, German A.; Liu, Lian; Li, Katherine M.; Beachy, Sara – Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 2022
Despite providing valuable intellectual labor to universities, graduate students experience oppression based on social class (e.g., underpaid labor, student debt, barriers to unionizing), which is compounded for graduate students who hold minoritized statuses (i.e., students of color, sexual minoritized students). Minimal research has focused on…

Higher education institutions have affirmed their commitment to antiracism but differ in how and when they introduce those values to graduate students. Engaging in a conversation about race and racism can be uncomfortable for some students, especially before trust has been established. A graduate school in the northeastern United States instituted…

Jackson, Grant R. – Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 2022
Research indicates that students' developmental capacity must be accounted for if postsecondary institutions' various diversity programs, pedagogies, and related efforts are to be successful. One such effort that has increased in prevalence in recent years, intergroup dialogue (IGD), is a pedagogy that brings together diverse groups of students to…

Chapman-Hilliard, Collette; Hunter, Evelyn; Adams-Bass, Valerie; Mbilishaka, Afiya; Jones, Bianca; Holmes, Ecclesia; Holman, Andrea C. – Journal of Diversity in Higher Education, 2022
Civic engagement is important for individual and collective development, and may serve as a means of collective agency for Black people. However, few studies have examined culture-specific factors that promote civic engagement among Black populations. In the current study, we use survey data to examine how racial identity dimensions (racial…
